Bill Morrison The Village Detective: A Song Cycle

Bill Morrison: The Village Detective: A Song Cycle

“With all of the beautiful decayed visuals that we can expect from a Morrison film, The Village Detective sees his practice evolve into something that sees the celluloid he uses as an object of interest… Fantastic.” Flip Screen

REDCAT is proud to present a sneak peek of acclaimed director Bill Morrison’s latest work, The Village Detective: A Song Cycle, due to be released later this year. Featuring a hypnotic score by Pulitzer Prize and Grammy Award winner David Lang, The Village Detective: A Song Cycle tells of a 1969 Soviet film found in a fisherman’s net off the coast of Iceland. The filmography of its leading actor offers a portal into a history that has endured on celluloid. From the director of Dawson City: Frozen Time, Morrison’s documentary is not to be missed.

Curated by Bérénice Reynaud and Eduardo Thomas as part of the Jack H. Skirball Series.  

Bill Morrison is a 2006 recipient of The Herb Alpert Award in the Arts in Film/Video.
